* CompleteMonster: [[OverarchingVillain Opal Koboi]] became [[CorruptCorporateExecutive head of her father's company]] by driving him insane. Organizing the Goblin rebellion alongside Briar Cudgeon, Opal took advantage of their violent nature to cause a violent uprising, planning to betray them all along. To escape prison after being arrested, Opal creates a clone, not caring it will die easily and cannot think for itself, allowing her to manipulate it. Killing [[spoiler:Julius Root]], Opal frames the innocent Holly and {{Mind Rape}}s a kind-hearted humanitarian, forcing him to send a probe into the Earth and reveal the Faerie people, hoping to cause a war behind humans and Faeries. Opal is also revealed to have experimented on and killed endangered animals to make herself more powerful. In the final book, Opal murders her own past version of herself when the past version of her was trying to free the present Opal from prison, which causes all products produced by her company to explode, with planes crashing and global communications cutting off. Manipulating the ghosts of dead Faeries to KillAllHumans and take over the surface world, Opal shows time and time again what a heartless creature she is.

** Magic has a bunch of new rules too: Grease is toxic for people with magic in them, animals can get glands extracted to enhance power, runes only need one spark to do something powerful wizards can't and mesmerizing on the fair folk works except when it doesn't.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Turnbull got a CryForTheDevil before dying with his loved one but the guy has the highest bodycount after Opal, brainwash people and was first introduced torturing an officer for another petty scheme. Only reason why Artemis would say he can't see him as a villain is because he is unaware of most of it because he was too busy guilt-tripping. Even his relationship with his loved one isn't that great when you keep in ind he brainwashed her into staying with him forever.

* TheChrisCarterEffect: ''Atlantis Complex'' introduces a lot of new rules about magic, apparently there is rune that work when hypnosis doesn't work but only Turnbull know how they work, the Vietnamese fairy had magic because of grandma recipe that she figure out on her own and no one ever figured it out, the fairies have a space program and it didn't answer the question of the previous book about Opal. While technology AssPull was always a thing, the magic rules were more grounded.

* AuthorTract: If one were to think "''Humans suck! Humans suck! Humans suck!''" was the message Colfer was trying to send then it would be understandable conclusion. There are many sections describing the harm humans do to the environment, how primitive their technology is compared to that of fairies and many of them are devious. Granted, most of this comes from the fairies themselves who can be lacking in morality themselves but it is a persistent theme.
